County Cricket Clubs get behind the Macmillan Way Challenge
County Cricket Clubs up and down the country are joining forces this summer to help raise the £108,000 needed to fund two new Macmillan nurses.
Clubs have come together to donate a selection of exciting, one-off prizes for cricket fans.
The auction is being organised by South West law firm, BPE Solicitors and lifelong cricket fan and player, Rob Bryan, who lost his Mum to cancer. Between 1st – 29th July, Rob and colleague, John Russell, will be walking the 297-mile Macmillan Way, from Boston in Lincolnshire, to Abbotsbury on the Dorset Coast, to help raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
All proceeds from the silent auction will go towards funding the training and employment of two new Macmillan nurses, each for a year. Macmillan nurses help nearly 600,000 people living with cancer and their families receive essential medical, practical and emotional support, but the NHS does not contribute to their cost during a nurse’s first year of employment.
You can help Rob reach his fundraising target by donating now. Rob is asking every reader to donate £2.97 (1 pence per mile), or more if they feel able.
